Smaller than UX? Does that mean that CT will shrink down to Yaris size and the TNGA-A platform?
Why make it more crossover-shaped? (read: taller). Wouldn't that just be a redundant and unnecessary second UX?What’s not clear yet, however, is whether Lexus will retain the CT 200h’s hatchback bodystyle or move to something more crossover-shaped.
Then why did Toyota/Lexus register a European trademark for UX 300e and not CT 300e?We know it will be offered with some form of electrification, and it’s possible that such a car could be Lexus’s long-awaited first EV.
With just a week in between, I've spent time in both a Lexus UX and the latest Mazda3 Premium and can assure you that the Mazda3's interior, in design, quality of materials and just about everything else is actually more deserving of Lexus badging than the UX itself!What if the next CT is just a lux. version of the new Mazda 3 !!!
I can't speak for others, but that would make me not consider another Lexus as I have had very, very bad experiences with Mazda. The current CT is based on the previous global compact platform, shared with the Prius, Corolla, Avensis, etc. It follows that a new CT would be based on the Lexus version of TNGA (GA-C).What if the next CT is just a lux. version of the new Mazda 3 !!!
UX 250h price - 8000 € = Corolla Sports 2L hybrid 180 hp.'(...) Some form of electrification': that this means 'BEV' is pure speculation. Nothing what I read here is pointing towards EV (unfortunately, as it would be a good choice). But as everything is still very Hybrid at Lexus, it would be a surprise to me...
The other thing: Lexus definitely needs a CT replacement (at least in some markets) as a 'gateway to the brand', to keep on offering something of app. -8.000 € compared to the UX. But why wouldn't it be something crossover like? Remember the LF-SA?
Thank you for considering my state of mind, but I perfectly calm, thank you.Bro calm down, we are just negotiating and everyone giving his opinion, by the way I am from the first guys on this website and I have currently 2 Lexus and 3 Toyotas and I even never had a Mazda before that said I am just dreaming to have the best from every world, no one can argue that Subaru symmetrical AWD is second to none, I like the classic Toyota/Lexus before current sporty wannabe designs
My cars are white GSF, ultrasonic blue ISF, grey 08 Corolla, grey 06 Yaris, silver 10 Camry
And regarding your point that Toyota do not fully owning Subaru and Mazda, yes you are right currently while we are talking yes this is true but that won't be the situation for long period as nothing stopping Toyota from taking both of them over
I hope they don't make LFSA B segment luxury is bs. Who even considering buying Q2 or A1. They are not luxury models. DS3 was pure luxury for B segment but too expensive. I vote for CT2. REAL C-SEGMENT HATCHBACK!!As far as Europe is concerned CT makes a lot of sense, even with 10 years still is one of the best sellers. Also, top-spec CT is cheaper than base-spec UX.
What I don't get is this LF-SA thing... Not even the German rivals have something like it (bellow UX/X2/GLA...) and they clearly try to create new segments... Even too many in my opinion.
Lexus usually does things differently, I'm hoping they keep this spirit and improve on it with more AFV's (BEV's/FCEV's).
